Meet The Team
Jennifer – Owner / Esthetician
My name is Jennifer Bruyn. I graduated from Gina’s College of Advanced Esthetics & Electrolysis in 2001. During school I was hired at Gina’s Spa in Waterloo and after graduation became the Head Esthetician. Working for almost 4 years at Gina’s taught me the importance of customer service, high level esthetics and respect for where the industry began. Wanting to expand my knowledge and get into the hospitality industry I worked at Langdon Hall in Cambridge for 2 1/2 years and then had the great opportunity to be the Spa Director at The Millcroft Inn & Spa (Vintage Hotels) for over 5 years. The Millcroft spa was 17,000 sq ft with indoor and outdoor pools, spa café and much more. Wanting to start my own family and be close to home I sadly said good bye to The Millcroft Inn & Spa. I have trained in California, Germany and Toronto. In 2013 a new adventure began. My dream came true as I opened The Riverstone Spa and Salon. My hope is to make Riverstone a special place for each and every one to enjoy. Whether it is to escape from the busy days, a gift given from that special someone or a well-deserved treat to yourself I promise that each visit you will leave feeling renewed and pampered. At the Riverstone Spa & Salon we will provide the best services each and every time with only the highest quality equipment and the top standards in sanitization. I have always worked very closely with the public health to ensure your services are done with your health as the top priority! We look forward to your visit!
Gianna – Registered Massage Therapist
I graduated from Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy (CCMH) in 2007 with an Honors Diploma and an Outreach Certificate in Sports Massage. Prior to attending CCMH, I obtained certificates in Reflexology (from the Canadian Academy of Reflexology and Deep Tissue Therapy) and Reiki (Usui, Level I and II). I have also obtained certificates in: Myofascial Release (Jenings), Esalen Deep Tissue, Sport Wrapping & Taping; Indie Head Massage and actively update my skills and knowledge with continuing education courses on a regular basis. Whether you are seeking massage through a relaxation-focussed treatment, prefer deep tissue or have any other health concerns that massage therapy can help with, you will be provided with the best treatment –therapeutic or relaxation – specifically tailored for you. With my experience treating a variety of clientele from young adults to seniors, I offer personal and caring treatment. Looking forward to working with you as part of your healthcare team!
Amanda – Esthetician
I have worked at RiverStone Spa and Salon since we first opened. I love the atmosphere and driving in the front entrance with the waterfall and swans is a sight to see and relaxes you instantly before you even enter the spa! Becoming an esthetician has always been a dream of mine. I worked in the health industry for years and then decided to go to school and have loved every minute. I specialize in manicure, pedicures and gel nails. My other passion is Hot Stone Massage. I hope you visit and I would love to give you the best treatment you have had. With quality equipment and high standards of sanitization I promise you will leave happy and want to come again! A little about myself…I have always loved the book Gillians Pigs from childhood and still do to this day I love pigs!
Chantalle – Hair Stylist
I began my career in the salon industry over 20 years ago. I was confident at an early age that this was my passion when I experimented on friends and family. One of my favorite aspects of my profession is that it doesn’t feel like work to me. There is always something new in the industry and everyday I get to make people feel good. I am grateful to be working at riverstone spa and salon and for having wonderful clients.
Kristie – Esthetician
I have worked at RiverStone Spa and Salon since we first opened. I feel that RiverStone is Guelph’s best kept secret; its quaint, relaxing and we provide top quality spa and salon services. After graduating in 2009 I pursued a very rewarding career in the spa industry. I have been fortunate to work in day spas and in a hotel spa. I am certified in all spa services, facials, ear piercing, threading and much more! Looking to broaden my service spectrum I completed a hairstyling program and am currently working on my apprenticeship. I look forward to pampering you from head to toe! When I am not at RiverStone Spa and Salon you can find me throwing a Frisbee in the park or walking the trails with my husky retriever, Sadie!
Shelby – Hair Stylist
I am part of the original team since RiverStone Spa and Salon opened. I love working here. The atmosphere is relaxed even in the salon where clients can enjoy a cappuccino or latte and read a magazine not feeling rushed. Clients get to enjoy their visit. I have been a licensed hairstylist for four years and I have always wanted to be a hairstylist. I am living that every day and helping people feel good about themselves. I enjoy meeting new clients and spending more time with regular clients. My hobbies are riding my Harley Davidson motorcycle and going to the gym!
